All The Diamonds You Can Eat

Kuato Was A Pimp

23 Jun 2021 1 minute read 0 comments Nathan Payne

Early Martian colonies were fraught with the same screeching, artless political division found on Earth today.  While Kuato is portrayed as an underdog and a hero in the evil, satanic political documentary Total Recall, in fact he was a jealous, artl...
